Residents of the Second City Might Not Have Such an Inferiority Complex if People Didn't Always Remind Them That Chicago Is Really the THIRD City ...


... No, of course they would. Inferior is Chicago's middle name -- The Windy Inferior City. It's the City of Big Inferior Shoulders. Inferior Hog Butcher to the World. I saw a man, he danced with his inferior wife. It's my kind of inferiorialistically toddlin' town.

That small irrelevant point aside, WFMU's Beware of the Blog has a pretty well-burgooed Second Part up now in its Two Part post about the '90s Chicago No-Wave thing, which is pretty interesting. So ... yeah ... it's pretty good. This has been another one of yer "STDPM Just Wanted to Say He Likes This" posts, with "Unnecessary and arbitrary Capitalization®" thrown in. Click on the damn link.

"Everyone in Chicago has met Fred Lomberg-Holms." I got this from a response to the Chicago No-Wave Post (thus narrow-narrow-narrow casting), to which I can only respond, "Fred Lomberg-Holms? Was he the voice of BJ Gigglesnort Hotel's 'Blob'?... if in fact 'voice' is the proper word to describe his incoherent ramblings"

As always, I thoroughly enjoy the imagery provided by this website... Why wasn't Mayor Daley piloting a tiny car down the LSD when he was wearing the Fez... or was he?

I have never met Fred Lomberg-Holm, to my knowledge, but I have viewed the Romberg Rabbit puppet at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, which is much more Chicagooey if you ask me.
